This is the NIMDA probing your system.  But you're mostly OK.  If the response is 4XX or 500, it's a FAILURE and nothing happened.

But you have the default.ida in place:

>>>08:23:22 202.111.154.51 GET /default.ida 200

FIX THIS NOW.  You don't need this file anyway, just DELETE it.

Be sure you are up to date on all Microsoft HotFixes for your version of Windows.

I agree with jhance.  The fact that your server returned 200 for default.ida is a BAD thing.  This just looks like a probe, if the log entry had looked like this:

08:23:22 202.111.154.51 GET /default.ida?XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX 200


Then you might have a serious problem.

i tried the following

http://my.server/default.ida

and got the following reply

The IDQ file default.ida could not be found.

does this mean i'm safe?  i have updated my win2k with all the ms critical updates.

It's a sample file that is included with IIS.  It is NOT needed for normal IIS web site operations and it is a known security risk.  Delete the file and be safe.
